The breeze that pushes three irons toward the ocean in North Carolina and later lifts wedges into the pot bunkers of Wales and Scotland has its roots here – at Tierra del Sol Resort and Country Club on the rugged north coast of Aruba.
If golf is a game of strategy and skill - an historic battle between a golfer, the land and the wind - then the frontline of that centuries-old fight is here on Aruba, where the Gulf Stream wind is born and blows from this island north past America to Great Britain.
Aruba is about a two and a half hour plane ride from Miami International Airport, and American Airlines makes that flight twice daily. But it is not the only departure point around the United States. Delta and American makes scheduled flights from New York, Atlanta and San Juan, while United flies from Washington D.C. and several charter plans make flights regularly from other popular cities. The easiest departure points from Canada are Toronto and Montreal, just be prepared to make a stop in the U.S. first.
Since the island of Aruba is so small, renting a car is not a necessity, especially given the abundance of taxis and easily accessibly bus system. Renting a scooter or motorcycle is another popular option. But if you are going to explore the entire island, renting a 4-wheel drive jeep is the best way to go, as it will allow you to explore the rugged terrain on the northern coast.
